Dangerous Visions

Harlan Ellison
Dangerous Visions Cover

Deluded Vainglory


More like Desperate Visions from the Editor's Buddies, But Mostly Deluded Vainglory from the Editor Himself, Though a Few Stories are Pretty Good, Especially Toward the End. And Three Women.

Reading Christopher Priest's account (which is hiding online somewhere) of the never-to-be-seen Last Dangerous Visions is most satisfying after slogging through Ellison's introductory spew. The Zelazny and Delany stories are expertly written, and there were a few other stories I enjoyed, but not enough to ever recommend this collection to anyone other than to discover just how very regressive and sexist New Wave can be.
